Vienna thief steals hundreds of Nono CDs

Who says people don’t care about contemporary music?

A thief single-mindedly stole between 800 and 1,000 CDs by the Italian avant-garde composer Luigi Nono (1924-1990) from the warehouse of a Vienna music distributor, police said Thursday.

In order to get to CDs of ‘Prometeo’ – a Nono work featuring four orchestras, a choir, speakers, two conductors and five soloists – the burglar had to break open a lock and move other merchandise to the side, Austrian media reported.

‘It sounds like something made up,’ a bemused Stefanie Schurich, manager of the music shop ‘col legno’, was quoted as saying by the Austrian press agency. ‘I have no explanation for this.’

Relax – Promoteo tickets are back on sale.
